With the only 24-hour licence in Darling Harbour, Dragon Boat Chinese Restaurant is the perfect spot for a Chinese feast and/or drinks, no matter the time of day.
With sweeping views over Darling Harbour, Dragon Boat Chinese Restaurant is also home to two private dining rooms if you’re looking to take a special occasion dinner up a notch. This is actually my second private dining experience at Dragon Boat, and both times have been excellent!
Stir-Fried Spanner Crab in Singapore Style with Steamed & Deep Fried Chinese Buns
We indulged in a delicious banquet thoughtfully prepared by chef Jing Wang (Owen), a true master of his craft. Highlights for me included the Peking Duck pancakes with melt-in-the-mouth crispy skin, carved right at the table; the stir-fried spanner crab swimming in a rich Singapore-style sauce, served with steamed and deep-fried Chinese buns; and the juicy steamed mussels with vermicelli and moreish, savoury black bean sauce.

Coupled with impeccable service, the experience at Dragon Boat Chinese Restaurant is certainly a special one. A special thank you to the wonderful owner Jamie, Chef Owen, Steven and Doris for a fabulous evening.
